madris in the light of "Ahadees" n Quran

Islamic institutes in Pakistan concentrate a lot on teaching their students the religious book called Quran and that is all they emphasize on. However, what they forget in teaching only Quran is that in Quran itself it is stated that one should have all required knowledge to walk in line with the other entire nation. Prophet Muhammad (S.W) said:

“People are mines, like mines of gold and silver; the more excellent of them in the days of Ignorance are the more excellent of them in Islam when they attain knowledge."[10] (M-Msh. 2:l.).

Mostly Quran is being taught in these institutes and because of which a stereotypical image of Islamic institutes have been made by the outsiders that they produce terrorists. Quran or Islam does not state anywhere that non-Muslims should be killed in the name of Islam. Hadith are any authentic statements given by the last messenger of Allah; however the authenticity has to be confirmed therefore one hadith which states:
"If anyone insults me, then any Muslim who hears this must kill him immediately."
Some terrorists believe that based on this hadith they have the right to kill anyone. However what the Holy Prophet actually said was:

"Religion is very easy and whoever overburdens himself in his religion will not be able to continue in that way. So you should not be extremists, but try to be near to perfection and receive the good tidings that you will be rewarded." Sahih Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 2, Number 38

Therefore blaming the fact that madrassas produce terrorists would be wrong however there has been a general perception that madrassas are responsible for producing extremists. Media has played a vital role in creating this image.
